latino voters from seniors, from women and from people concerned about the economy who want this economy to move forward, not backward, florida's going to stick with president obama and that's going to be in the win column for him on election day. >> both sides making aggressive points on where florida will go and both sides want it really badly, we shall see. congress woman debbie wasserman schultz, good to see you. >> you, too, thomas, good to see you. >> i want to bring in our political panel, democratic strategist chris cofinis, msnbc contributor and republican strategist susan del fino. i want to start with you, chris, because campaign fund-raising is poised to pass $2 billion, "b," that mark, the president caulk talking about campaign spending and i want to play it for everybody in his interview with brian williams that aired on rock center, take a look. >> the amount of money being spent in my campaign and mr. romney's campaign and the super pacs out there is ridiculous. >> so, there's been a lot of speculation, chris, about a big ad bomb from the governor. could that overcome the

2008. talk about how that is impacting this election. guest: 26% of the state is latino. this voting block has been shown to hear a lot about the economy, a lot about education. immigration does not rank as the highest this year of interest to these voters. it is an underlying across the board thing. are you saying the right thing on these topics. it is 2/3 versus 1/3 that the voters are split on this. this is what candidates are being -- candidates are fighting about. obama made a promise to address it in his first year in office and did not do that. he said he did not have time and did not have a cooperative congress. that has not stopped republicans who say, we can bring a comprehensive immigration reform, which is a term both parties defined differently. they are trying to make that a sales pitch. if you turn on spanish radio, you hear nonstop commercials from both sides. this is a swing state for the president and it is also a swing state for the senate and one of the congressional races on here as well. host: if we are talking with karoun demirjian from the washington son. you
%. president obama's pathway to re-election is difficult even with the latino and african voters across the country. why is president obama 36% among white voters and what can he do to up that number? >> i think that he needs to focus on job creation and lay out what he did to save the country from the great depression. certainly emphasize on what he did to stave the automobile industry. that's what is holding blue cole sxar white voters in the state of ohio. i have to tell you this, luke. only in mitt romney's mind is a path where he sits at 206 electoral votes right now and the president sits at 246, more favorable position to be in. we have got to get to 270. that's the part of the campaign we are in right now. any normal person would prefer to be in a posture where even according to nbc we are at about 246 right now. we are ahead in ohio. we are very strong in virginia. where we have a great cincinnati candidate in tim kaine and will win nevada. the only thing the folks in romneyville are doing is they are moving forward with a confidence gain. they are walking around talking about
cycles ago and you may remember george w. bush made a point of courting the latino vote. he was the texas governor and he even spoke spanish on the campaign trail. but governor mitt romney's position and the republican moves some of them on immigration and border control and health care, could be causing some problems and eroding some of that goodwill and the inroads that president obama -- president bush made in the latino community. that is the fastest growing part of the electorate and it is critical for president obama's campaign because he may, in fact, be banking, banking on latinos to win his re-election. the reason i can say that is because he actually made this extraordinarily telling comment to the "des moines register" in what at one point was an off the record interview, but that he and his campaign released. here's the quote -- but that raises some fascinating questions about mr. president obama's election strategy. our cnn contributor and daily beast senior columnist john avalon written a piece about this. i encourage you for wait for this interview to be over and then to yo
's latino fire wall with almost 1 in 4 being latino and a recent poll shows they're more enthusiast nick that election and that's 61% of latinos compared to 71 nationally according to latino decisions, but including all groups here, romney is slightly ahead and the real clear average he's ahead by two percentage points and the first debate in the beginning of october and as tim russert told us, down to the wire, it's florida, florida, florida. >> and obviously, the ground game is so important that partly because of that big latino population, big push for voter registration. where does it stand? >> up to july, the year up to july, democrats were behind by 10 to 1 in increasing their voter registration roles compared to last election, but now that we have all of the numbers and almost all of them, 500,000 more democrats are registered than republicans. >> richard louie, thank you so much. i'm chris jansing. thomas roberts is up next. their very first word was...

're probably not going to win there. and one of the primary reasons is because latinos in that state are just fed up with republicans. not so much on rhetoric, but because of the policies how do you fix that in your party and how frustrated are you? >> i'm not quite sure if it is policies and i'll tell you why. remember that the president's been very good. he promised in his first 12 months, he gave his word, to the country, and to the latino population in the country in particular that within the first 12 months he was going to do comprehensive immigration reform. he didn't do it. but by the way, look, look at senator reid's election. he did exceedingly well latino population because he promised he was going to present and pass the dream act. he did it. he did a version of it, by the way, without talking to anybody else. but then after that, after the election, he doesn't mention it anymore. he doesn't do it anymore. he hasn't even proposed it anymore. so we see this time and time again. so it really is rhetoric. it's not policy. on the policies, look at the increase in poverty. the group of
. when he's talking about the latino community. at that point was off the record. that's now been agreed it's on the record. why has it taken so long, four years, for the president to reach this point on immigration reform and why should people believe it will happen in 2013 if he's re-elected since it did happen in the first four -- didn't happen in the first four year. >> look at the latino and hispanic community and what they saw in the debate stage from governor romney and rick santorum and rick perry. i mean look, these are folks that -- to say they alienated the hispanic latino communities in this country is an understatement. that's why you see support in states like nevada and new mexico, virginia and florida and ohio from the latino and hispanic communities. these are votes that the president has earned based on the actions he's taken on behalf of the community over the last 12 months, not just the last 12 months but three and a half years, and i take the president at his word that's something he'll pursue in a second term. so the record is very, very stark as it relates to the
and party so ail len yated the fastest-growing demographic group in the country, the latino community. why shouldn't the campaign want that part, a blupt comment comm is true and will matter come election night? >> it's actually very similar to something he said before. >> absolutely. >> a year ago at univision forum where he talked about how he would run against republicans and said essentially all he would have to do is run debate clips from the republican presidential primary and the republicans were saying things about illegal immigrants and things like that and saying sort of -- not necessarily disparaging comments but framing them in a way that might not be to people's likings and interesting. i think they tried to have it off the record and speaks to both campaigns overly cautious in the last 13 days. >> yeah. >> they don't want to draw attention to anything that will turn in to a twitter moment, a youtube moment. so that i think is really what is behind this but i think ultimately it's pretty harmless comment. >> yeah. >> that he made. and a true comment. >> he said it's not a rela
. the president has been able to stay even with romney by winning big margins with latino voters and leads among them, 63/34 in colorado and winning ready for this with latino voters in neve day by 74/23. anyway the race for colorado tighteninged. why has it become such a close race? romney has gained among key groups since we last polled a month ago by 14 points a month ago, 54/40. it's been cut in half and the president only leads by 7 points. now, the president led independents, 50-39. now, that 11-point margin is a virtual draw and romney is up a point among independents. leader of the marist poll joins me now. colorado, we sit here, we talk about ohio, lee, we talk about -- but colorado, tell me this, what was the raw vote difference between the two because obviously statistically 48/48, a total tie? >> single digits. one handful. i think what's interesting, we talked about ohio throughout the campaign as being the bellwether, but, you know, obama is sort of getting in ohio what he got last time. and that may be because of the car industry and the whole auto bailout. around the rest of the
, the president will go west. the latino vote is critical to nevada. when you got a dead heat race that either candidate could win, you're going to spend a lot of time and a lot of hours on the road and because you have to go from nevada to new hampshire to florida, got a lot of ground to cover. >> the president acknowledging how important the latino vote is. this is something the president told the des moines register, apparently kind of off the record, the quote now coming from an interview, a transcript of which the white house released just this morning, saying this is off the record, i will just be very blunt, should i win a second term, a big reason i will win a second term is because the republican nominee and the republican party have so alienated the fastest growing demographic group in the country, the latino community. so that acknowledgement there. he says it is off the record, it was his intent, it seems as though to be on the record as making it very notable that the latino vote is pivotal. >> this was an odd one, fred. the president called the editor and the top officials of des
, the latino community." a direct quote from the president in that interview. meanwhile, republican challenger mitt romney is facing another distraction in the interview of abortion rights for women. cnn's national political correspondent jim acosta is with the romney campaign in reno, nevada. >> reporter: in what's now a horse race to the finish, mitt romney was rounding up votes in nevada and trying to stay on message on the economy. >> the president doesn't understand what it takes to get this economy going. he doesn't have a plan to get jobs for americans. i do. and that's why i'm going to win. >> reporter: romney's in the midst of a swing state blitz flying from colorado to nevada to iowa to ohio then back to iowa, back to ohio and then onto florida and virginia. >> this is that issue that every candidate for federal or state office -- >> reporter: but a new distraction cropped up where richard mourdock made jaws drop with his comments on why abortion should be outlawed in the case of rape. >> i came to realize life is that gift from god. and i think even when life begins in that horrible
thing he said that was really interesting is that latinos -- should i win a big reason will be because the republican nominee and party have so alienated the fastest-growing demographic group in the country the latino community. if the turnout is over 9%, obama should win the lead among them is massive. do you think that turnout will be the thing to make the difference in nevada, colorado, florida, perhaps virginia, those competitive states with growing latino populations? >> if obama wins colorado and virginia you have to attribute it in part to that margin. when's sort of interesting, that's difficult to measure well and not all pollsters using spanish-speaking interviews and the rest but the nbc news/"wall street journal" poll i believe gave president obama 70% and the same as the decisions poll of the last week. that's actually slightly higher than percentage than the exit poll four years ago and equals the margin of four years ago, that's something different from everybody else except probably african-american voters where the numbers have gone down so i think that's right. >> mar
to offend latinos almost as much. that's damaging in this campaign. that's going to be devastating in four years and eight years and beyond if all they are left with is white men in the republican party and it's not going to win elections for you. >> isn't it more important, melissa, when you look at the sense of diversity and the quest for inclusion in this country of whites, blacks, latinos, guys gays, lesbians, straights, that the method that we're moving toward is an electorate that they are away from in this kind of strategy? >> the demographic diversity, so what you show there is completely accurate but this electorate is a different one. it's part of why we've seen intense voter suppression effort, because the idea is, if you can shrink that electorate out, push out young voters as the voter suppression efforts are doing, if you can push them out, then you may get exactly the kind of electorate where the gop could win. but more than that -- and this is critically important, white americans no longer like the idea, for the most part, of being in a party that is lilly white and associ
alienating latino voters. florida's latino population has exploded and a diverse latino population making up nearly 23% of the state and as we look at the diversification, it doesn't include cubans, puerto ricans and mexicans. is the latino population in florida solid leah for the president or is it likely that the president can make inroads. >> the community is solidly behind the president and they're behind the president for several reasons. first and foremost because the president's plans for the economy is built from the middle out. it helps middle class families and not just the top down approach that outsourced jobs and crashed our economy before. the hispanic community understands that just like the broader community and on immigration, this is a president that's committed to immigration reform and it's taken dramatic steps to help immigrants find a place in this country while governor romney's position is still one of self-deportation. he struggles to maintain that and the community here in florida have heard this loud and clear. >> we appreciate your time. >> my pleasure, thanks, th

constituencies that could alter the situation, particularly in florida. we're going to start with latinos here. we've got two recent polls that show a conflicting picture on who latinos in florida support for president. a miami herald florida international university poll shows obama beating romney by seven points. but a tampa bay times miami herald poll shows romney up by two points. so you're a member of romney's hispanic steering committee. what are you seeing on the ground as far as latino vote goes? >> the latino community has been hit really, really hard by this recession. if you look at, for example, children in poverty, the largest group of children in poverty are the hispanic latino children in the united states. poverty has increased among latinos. unemployment, frankly, is excessively high. there are no jobs. really in the entire country, and that also stands true for florida. so, when all the rhetoric is said and done, the question is, are -- do our grandchildren and our children deserve this? is this the best the united states can be? or do they deserve, and frankly do we deserve,
, women -- 4 in 5 are youth, women, african-american or latino. >> well, what the minority proportion of the electorate is could be the key to the election. whites were 74% in 2080. that number has come down in each of the last five presidential elections. if it keeps coming down, that's huge for obama because he's dominating african-americans and they have a high turnout propensity. latinos he's dominating but they show less interest in the race. young voters show less interest in the rate. with erlarly voting, romney's ahead by 15 points among people who say they're going to vote election day. how do the two things wash out? i do think it's clear that obama has an advantage electorally. i don't believe mitt romney has momentum anymore. it hadn't been prv tonigoven ob got a surge going, could be very slight but this thing is close. the purpose of the momentum argument that the romney people are making is there's something called a bandwagon effect in politics and people want to be on the winning side. so there's a sense of -- it's not a huge effect but it's something, if they get tha

neglects if he's talking about poverty, poverty for black and latino is concentrated poverty. not only are you poor but the household in which you live is poor, the community from which you come is poor, the schools are devastated and poor, and the surrounding resources are scarcely able to take care of you. so when he says that, he's saying nothing. he's not addressing the structural impediments to the flourishing of the very people he says ostensibly he wants to help. he has no analysis of structural impediments to them doing well and the ladder of upward mobility he's knocking down every wrung with his social policy but damning people for not getting on the ladder to climb up >> that's the professional sociological view. what is your view as an economyist? >> sure. it's a deep failure among ryan and romney to acknowledge that sometimes markets don't work well at all. now, if you've been through the great recession you can't ignore that but somehow they do, and if you walk through neighborhoods where market failure is not a recessionary activity, it's a permanent activity, and if you
